Case studies

The following case studies will be discussed:

  • Review of findings following a CAA audit of an operator
    The students will receive a number of findings and subsequently proposals for a corrective action plan. Their task will be to suggest classification, assess the corrective action plans, time frames, enforcement and communication.
  • Review of an operator's application for a new AOC with special emphasis on the air operator's management system. The applicant intends to operate 2 B737 in Europe. The application also contains specific approvals like LVO, PBN and RVSM.
    This exercise is spread over the course dates, finishing (when time available) with filling out an AOC and the associated Operations Specification.

The exercises will be performed in groups of 2 - 3 persons and the results alternatingly presented for discussions among all attendees.
